GRANULAR & PRILLED

PRODUCT > UREA

UREA IS A WHITE CRYSTALLINE SUBSTANCE WITH THE CHEMICAL FORMULA CO(NH2)2; IT IS HIGHLY WATER SOLUBLE AND CONTAINS 46% NITROGEN. UREA IS CONSIDERED AN ORGANIC COMPOUND BECAUSE IT CONTAINS CARBON. IT WAS THE FIRST ORGANIC COMPOUND EVER SYNTHESIZED BY CHEMISTS; THIS WAS ACCOMPLISHED IN THE EARLY 1800S
UREA IS MADE BY REACTING CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2) WITH ANHYDROUS AMMONIA (NH3) UNDER 3,000 PSI PRESSURE AND AT 350° F.

CO2 + 2NH3 > CO(NH2)2 + H2O

THE REMOVAL OF WATER THAT OCCURS DURING THE REACTION IS REFERRED TO AS "DEHYDRATION." THE RESULTING MOLTEN MIXTURE IS FURTHER PROCESSED INTO EITHER PRILLED OR GRANULES.
UREA IS THE FASTEST GROWING DRY NITROGEN FERTILIZER USED BY FARMERS. UREA IS THE MAJOR FERTILIZER TRADED IN INTERNATIONAL COMMERCE. IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE UREA IS EXPECTED TO ACCOUNT FOR MORE THAN 50% OF THE NITROGEN FERTILIZER IN WORLD TRADE. WHEN COMPARED TO OTHER DRY FERTILIZERS, UREA HAS CAPTURED MORE THAN 65% OF THE WORLD TRADE.
